Prepare for some serious celebrity sightings in town – Kanye West could be hitting Dublin for his star-studded stag.

The rapper, who is set to marry reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Paris on May 24, is rumoured to be coming to the Irish capital to celebrate his last lads’ night out before the nuptials.

Best friend Jay Z is organising the 36-year-old’s stag bash and is reported to be considering Dublin following his trip here with wife Beyonce and toddler daughter Blue Ivy for Bey’s ‘Mrs Carter’ world tour in March.

The most likely location for the potentially-extravagant affair is the Ritz-Carlton hotel, with odds that the gang will stay there at 6/1.

A trip to the Guinness Storehouse is possible at 8/1, and the odds that Jay Z could instead opt for the upmarket Four Seasons hotel are the same.

The Sugar Club on Lower Leeson Street and Lillies Bordello are also possible partying locations.

It’s a little less likely Kanye and Jay Z will make Copper Face Jack’s their haunt for the weekend with the odds at just 100/1, according to Paddy Power bookmakers.

One thing is for sure; the Irish venues will be fighting for the boys’ business as it is 3/1 that Kanye could spend more than $1million on his last night as a single man.

According to the bookies, the likeliest celebrities to show up are Niall Horan, Michael Fassbender and Bono.

Colin Farrell and Graham Norton could also feature on the guest list, with odds at 20/1.

Jay  Z experienced Dublin for the first time with his family in March during Beyonce’s world tour.

The couple made the most of their stay in the city and visited Phoenix Park and Dublin Zoo as well as renowned eateries Coppinger Row and Fade Street Social.

Although accompanied by security, the pair were left relatively alone by Irish fans who instead opted to take photos from afar.
